Joan Rivers’ personal EMT doctor took a selfie while performing the alleged biopsy that ended her life, it has been reported.
According to CNN, a staff member of Yorkville Endoscopy clinic said that the comedienne’s personal ear, mouth and throat doctor – who is not certified by the clinic – proceeded with the biopsy even though she was not authorized to do so by Joan.
Then while Rivers was still unconscious due to anesthesia, the doctor took a selfie in the room.
CNN says investigators believe that the biopsy caused Rivers’ vocal cords to swell, which led tho their closure and ultimately, the respiratory and cardiac arrest that ended her life.
The doctor in question has been identified by TMZ as Gwen Korovin, who has treated the likes of Celine Dion, Lady Gaga, Hugh Jackman, John Mayer and Brooke Shields. For now, she has not been formally held responsible for Rivers’ death.
